BRAWLEY — The dust is still settling at Cattle Call Arena, but already there are lessons to be learned from the 2020 edition of this city’s signature event.

As has been previously reported, this year’s Cattle Call Rodeo took place entirely in the absence of crowds. All of the competitions were livestreamed on the Cowboy Channel Plus app and will be broadcast over the course of this weekend on the regular Cowboy Channel.
